Now, now, it's so much easier to slap on a question than to provide an answer.

Cursory look suggests a Rumanian cross but the peaked cap seems to also suggest a Bulgarian and the collar tabs a Hungarian!! Simply stuck and not able to make an educated guess. I am sure you are in good hands: Dieter, VJK, Miocid, Vienna, Herbert, Denis, Staffenberg, Harmel, Mike Miller, John Toner, Phil Nix, JPK, Gareth and all those I have forgotten for the moment.

In a way we keep the good English tradition... we don't say anything when there is nothing to say.

Happy New Year to the Wehrmacht ID Olympiad

You said Georg. Conveniently forgot he served in the Yugoslavian campaign. So slim and without googles (guess you can't wear goggles to a funeral!) Does look like his mouth, although Georg liked to have his spange also to his EKII

Hi Elwyn,293x441 is Obstlt Martin Steglich.

327X486 looks like the future Eichenlaubtrager Generalmajor Ernst Konig,
he is though wearing a Mtn Troop badge,
he spent most of his fighting career with the 31st Inf Div,
but later Cmdr 28th Jager Div.

Harmel :?

Hi Harmel,

Very well done again!!

Steglich it was. The awards and the positions of them and the signature all matched. How could I have missed it? Gave too much credence to a real, Sütterlin signature.

Flipping through my Biblio GebJg's.

Cheers
